Here’s a classic center-hall Colonial that doesn’t completely fit the stereotype. As should be evident from the photo above, this house for sale in Wayne offers a more casual take on this Main Line staple house type.

Living room

Not to worry, though: it has the requisite level of dignity and formality in its living and dining rooms, both of which hew true to the form.

Dining room

The living room has an elegant brick fireplace, while the formal dining room features wainscoting and a wet bar.

But once you get past these rooms, the vibe gets more casual real quick. Check out that contemporary glass sunroom beyond the living room, for instance.

Or the skylit family room, which is attached to a recently updated kitchen.

The cabinetry in the kitchen, by the way, blends farmhouse, Arts and Crafts, traditional and contemporary influences in a highly appealing manner.*

Home office

You’ll find similar cabinetry built into the main-floor home office. Given all the windows it has, you might find yourself easily distracted by the view, though.

If the distraction proves too much, just grab your laptop and head out onto the huge wraparound rear deck, where you can drink in the large level backyard on this house’s sloping wooded lot.

The deck, by the way, is accessible from both the sunroom and the kitchen. The kitchen has an island with breakfast bar seating, and there’s a breakfast area in the attached family room, both of which are connected to the dining room by a doorway. Combine these spaces and you can throw quite a party for your friends and guests, who can easily circulate among the spaces once dinner is over.

And in bad weather, everyone can watch movies or play in the basement media room.

In short, what you have here is a traditional home with both a formal and a casual side that’s built for modern living.

*Speaking of modern living, this house’s owners are embarking on a radical transformation of the way they live and face an interesting design challenge as they move into their new digs in the city. We’ll fill you in on how they solved it when they’re done.
